BEIJING, Nov. 20 -- "Twilight", a film about a romance between a vampire and a human that created an international buzz will finally meet Chinese audiences on November 25, almost one year later than its American debut.

As it is so late in reaching China, and vampire themed films have not been screened on the Chinese mainland before, local importer, Huaxia Film Distribution Co., Ltd. is not overly confident about its upcoming box office performance. It plans to test the genre using "Twilight", according to a report in the Legal Evening Paper on Wednesday.

The "Twilight" sequel, "New Moon", premiered in L.A. on November 16, with a star-studded red carpet and thousands of fans crowding to get to a glimpse of the film's stars, including lead duo Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.

An unnamed source with Huaxia remarked that if the box office performance of "Twilight" proves good, they would consider importing 'New Moon' as soon as possible, said the report.

Though "Twilight" has arrived late in China, it is not new to Chinese audiences and the novel, "Twilight" by Stephenie Meyer, on which the film is based, already has a huge fan base here with many Chinese youngsters excited at the chance to catch the vampire flick at the cinema.

"Twilight" tells the story of Bella, a teenage girl who risks everything when she falls in love with an extremely handsome 100-year-old vampire.
